In the Creative Drawing class at ActonArt, students focus more on how to come up with ideas then technical skills.
While technical aspects are very important to drawing, being able to come up with an engaging idea is also critical! In this session, students were learning how to bust up art block and begin an idea with a loose doodle - and how that can become a weird and wild idea.
For the first project of Faces Features Figures, students at ActonArt drew a forward face.
This most basic of poses helps establish proportioning skills and measurements students will carry with them through the rest of the trimester.
The Art Year Program at ActonArt began last week in earnest with composition and sketching!
The first trimester of the Art Year focuses on the foundations of making art and creative aspects, so the initial class talked about making our best ideas with the use of good composition.
This week at ActonArt, students in the Foundation classes are drawing the green sea turtle!
These Basic A and Intermediate A1 examples are using copic marker and color pencil to create patterns and tones.
